“We took a lot of knowledge from setting up the 50th art installations in our parks and the Orlando International Airport and wanted to spread a little of that magic out into the world,” Will Gay, design director with Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group, said. “It all started with a little idea and a question, ‘Could we do this? Could we turn this into a dynamic art display bigger than anything we’ve ever done before?’”

Inside the building will be a new Walt Disney World Store, which combines merchandise, ticket sales and the first-ever interactive Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station, officials said. The store is due to open May 31.
